The Nokian E-Truck range of truck tyres strike a balance between economical, care-free kilometers and effective all-weather properties. The latest addition to the range is sizes for medium-sized trucks. The new 19.5 size complements the tyre range, enabling medium-duty trucks in the 12–16-ton range for every season.
Nokian Tyres’ Newest Addition to E-Truck Tyre Range
Regional and urban pickup and delivery traffic presents its own special challenges for tyres. Maneuvering the tight corners and cramped courtyards in the city calls for precise handling properties. The suburban byways can get slippery and snowy during the winter. And all the time there is the chafing of asphalt, trying to wear out your tyres prematurely.
“The bigger Nokian E-Truck tyres already have robust tread pattern designs that offer an impressive service life”, says Teppo Siltanen, Product Manager at Nokian Tyres. “With the new 19.5 tyre sizes, we developed them even further and combined the latest in tread pattern design with special, abrasion-resistant rubber compound.”
The new Nokian E-Truck Steer 19.5 and Nokian E-Truck Drive 19.5 truck tyres are designed to give their best performance in local transports and on city streets. They also complement the Nokian E-Truck tyre range, which now stretches from heavy truck sizes to smaller commercial vehicles.
“With the 17.5-sized truck tyres released earlier this year, we can add value to our customers by offering a comprehensive range of tyres”, says Teppo Siltanen. “Now their entire fleet can have tyres with similar good properties.”
Besides their long service life, all Nokian E-Truck tyres offer efficiency for different weather conditions.
“We have a long tradition in achieving good winter properties without compromising service life or driving accuracy”, Teppo Siltanen says. “All of the Nokian E-Truck series of tyres have the 3PMSF marking, which means no weather will slow you down.”
Nokian E-Truck Steer 19.5 tyre is a stable and reliable front tyre for medium size delivery trucks, offering good handling properties with its sturdy tread pattern. For a long, trouble-free service life it has an even wear-pattern, and the special zigzag-shaped wide grooves effectively reduce stone trapping .
Nokian E-Truck Drive 19.5 tyre is designed for all-year use in demanding urban and regional traffic. For grip and confident handling in in all circumstances, it features a dense block pattern made of special rubber compound and an open centre tread with semi-open shoulder design. Optimised tread block staggering provides driving stability for safe, comfortable ride.
Commercial trucks are constantly evolving. The markets as well as legislation demand for quiet, agile, low-emission transports, and electric delivery trucks are on their way.
“The urban and regional traffic is shifting towards lighter, quieter and less polluting vehicles, and it’s a good thing”, Teppo Siltanen says. “That enables more flexible traffic and cleaner air – so Nokian Tyres wants to offer tyres that speed up the change!”
